hello,

i got one binary file for ECMWF forecast data, but have no idea of its
structure.

i tried the code:

  setfileoption("bin","ReadByteOrder","BigEndian")
  f = cbinread("ec_file",-1,"float")
  printVarSummary(f)
  asciiwrite ("ec.txt", f)

and it shows the first several lines in file ec.txt like:

53833.26
-nan
 0
2.150461e-40
2.942727e-44
2.35802e-38
4.591789e-40
3.325774e-34
9.860761e-32
2.350989e-38
1.025519e-28
9.184811e-41
1.5186e-36
6.439222e-10
6.613232e-39
1.421491e-40
 0
9.629649e-35
-nan

...

i want to get the variable info in the binary file, so what can i do?

many thanks to reply.
